If we were living in a role-playing game, we would probably be congratulated by a non-player character for unlocking the new year after surviving trial upon trial. After all, 2020 has been a mind-numbing, grueling video game for most of us. It has taken a heavy toll on different aspects of our health, whether physical, social, or mental.
Now that 2020 has drawn to a close, we should begin by uplifting ourselves with optimism and shifting our focus to fresh starts and new beginnings.
